ICD-9-CM Volume 3

ICD-9-CM Volume 3 is a system of procedural codes. It is a subset of ICD-9-CM (volumes 1 and 2 are used for diagnostic codes.)

The United States National Center for Health Statistics drafted ICD-10-PCS in 2000 as a potential replacement for ICD-9-CM Volume 3, but the World Health Organization (WHO) has neither set an implementation date for ICD-10-PCS nor set a phase-out date for ICD-9-CM. Hence, ICD-9-CM Volume 3 is still in effect.
